About the Recreation Department

What We Do & Why We're Here

We are dedicated to building a stronger community through educational and recreational programming. By offering numerous activities and events, it is our goal to bring our residents with different backgrounds and common interests together.


Occasionally we are in need of volunteers to help out with events and/or programs. If you enjoy working with others and would like to help out from time to time, please feel free to contact us.

We are always open to new ideas of trips and programs to offer. If you have any suggestions on classes or would like to be instructor please give us a call.
